After spending time at the Auburn Pro Day yesterday, the Patriots will be spending some one-on-one time with another SEC prospect today: Georgia interior offensive lineman David Andrews. According to Aaron Wilson of the National Football Post, the Patriots have a private workout scheduled with Andrews for today.
Andrews is a three-year starter at Georgia, and was named the team’s MVP in 2014. He has experience at both center and guard. With Bryan Stork entrenched at center for the foreseeable future, the Patriots would likely view Andrews as a guard.
Andrews was not invited to last month’s NFL Draft Combine, and was considered one of the event’s bigger snubs. Andrews used the snub as motivation:
"It is what it is. It’s just fuel for the fire for me. Obviously, it does tick you off that some people don’t feel like you’re good enough to be invited for that. I know I am. I know I’m a good football player."
The Patriots have frequently had success with offensive linemen that were non-combine invitees in the past. The first name that comes to mind in that regard is offensive tackle Sebastian Vollmer, who the team selected in the second round of the 2009 draft.
Andrews is currently projected by most as a day three pick or priority free agent.
